2 Room Shower Tent:

No-Rinse Body Bath: & Shampoo:

Used by NASA and Hospitals. When my dad was bed ridden this is the product they used on him, so I gave it a try and I love it! The No-Rinse formula is perfect for van camping when you aren’t able to rinse off which is a requirement with almost all other soaps. You really do feel refreshed and are odor free. I can’t say enough about this product.
